Thomas Clifford, 1st Baron Clifford of Chudleigh (1630-1673), Statesman

Sitter in 6 portraits
Clifford was the most resolute member of the Cabal ministry, pursuing a steady pro-French policy. He signed the secret part of the Treaty of Dover - accepting a subsidy from France in exchange for the conversion of England to Catholicism - in 1670, and was created Baron and appointed Lord Treasurer in 1672. As a Catholic, he was barred from office by the Test Act (1673), and he died shortly afterwards.
